Reading Ahead

Adele Parks

I’ve always dreamed of being a writer and my first novel – Playing Away - was published in 2000; that year the Evening Standard identified me as one of London’s ‘Twenty Faces to Watch’, which was very nice of them! I’ve published twenty bestselling novels in twenty years, including the number 1 bestsellers Lies Lies Lies and Just My Luck .

In 2008 I wrote a Quick Read, Happy Families as part of the celebrations of World Book Day, which went on to win Quick Read Learners’ Favourite Award, as voted for by the public.

What do you love about reading?

Reading is so good for education, empathy and mental health. Creativity brings us together.
